Your legal services practice deals with many contractual disputes in Small Claims Court. It only makes sense to have solid processes in place that will serve you well before a judge. Our presenters guide you through the progression of the dispute: from establishing whether a contract exists, to whether (and how) it was breached; from determining who is at fault to who should be sued and for how much. Is your client’s claim based on a failure to perform the contract? Or unpaid debts? Whatever the situation is, you need to be fully prepared.

  • Find out what constitutes a contract and consider variations to standard forms
  • Learn what information you need to elicit from clients to determine if there is a cause of action
  • Consider the type of evidence a judge would want to see to establish breach or failed performance
